1908: Bikes @ Brooklands

The world’s first motor racing circuit opened in 1907; in 1908 bikes joined the fun. It all started with a head-to-head race for a bet. Just posted in the 1908 features section you’ll find details of the action, some sniffy letters from the competitors, an uptight local suing the organisers and a world speed record. The pics are pretty good too.
